A wonderful little monster from one of my other favorite books as a child, "One Monster After Another" by Mercer Mayer! I used to stare at this book for hours!

Okay, so I will admit that I am completely hooked on Game of Thrones. Luckily I'm in good company, as my husband and many of my fellow artists are also in love with the show! With the airing of the latest episode last Sunday, "Ghost of Harrenhal", I was inspired to try to capture the likenesses of a few of my favorite characters! First up are Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) and his sell-sword bodyguard, Bronn (Jerome Flynn).
Next up, Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) and Lady Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley). These two are giving me a bit more trouble. Mainly because I made a massive rookie mistake, that I shouldn't have after my 20+ years of drawing - I ran out of room on the page. Had I roughed out the entire thing before digging in I could have avoided it, but alas, I did not. So now I have a semi-decent Lady Catelyn and a squash-legged Brienne. Even though I already inked it and attempted to fix it in Photoshop, I may have to go and redraw Brienne's lower body on a separate sheet and fix it that way. It still looks wonky to me despite my efforts to salvage it. Ah well, here they are so far!
